In an instant, the image of every ...http://caelumetterra.wordpress.com/2013/11/19/from-the-ct-archives-on-technology-and-worship/
The Propers Are Proper! LEX ORANDI, LEX CREDENDI - November 2, 2013 ... for just about any given Mass.

"Loving, Serving, Ever Be" GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - August 20, 2013 ... Paluch Company helped with the celebration of the life of Charlie Odegard at his Funeral Mass. What an honor it was to lead the music at this celebration. Frankly, I just don't know how people handle death when there is an absence of faith. Yesterday's funeral Mass showed me once again the power that the spoken and sung word can have in times of extreme sorrow and loss. The homily, delivered by a close friend of Charlie, was inspiring and challenging. The ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2013/08/loving-serving-ever-be.html
